For getting Markos and Jerome to North Carolina (I will explain why this is important below), it looks like May will be the date from this on MyDD:
We are also in the works of adding a more stops in the South in early May. For the east coast leg, we have a lot more cities to add, so if you are anywhere within 8 hours of DC, go at it with helping to organize a tour stop in May.
From my earlier post describing the tour's desire to add dates and associated poll, it appears that most of our readers would like to have a book signing with the possibility of Brad Miller stopping by. I would like us to have a united plan for the tour; since I have not contacted any bookstores or Brad about appearing, please leave suggestions and contact information below. I will contact the bookstores (or coffee shops) and then set up an action plan to get all of us to suggest the same stop.
As for why it is important, both Jerome with MyDD and Markos with Dailykos have been instrumental in developing wide read blog communities on a national scale. Since it is always more difficult to get these things going in Red States, it would be great for them to come give us a boast. Their presence will bring attention to our state, our cause, and this site. Once we get people reading, we can get them thinking about the issues we are discussing. Once we have them discussing, hopefully we can persuade them to fight for integrity, competence, and the common good (and Regional Rail).
